HP server power up after outage
Posted on 2014-02-18
Hi guys and thanks to everyone who can give me some insight here.
I have an enclosed rack with AC units cooling internally. I have a UPS that gives me about 1 hour of time on a few HP servers and few cisco switches. The AC units are not on the UPS, so when the power dies, I would like everything to be shutoff rather quickly to avoid any heat issues.
When the power goes out and the UPS moves to battery, the management server sends a script to shutdown the servers. There is also a PDU which I can script to shutdown each individual power receptacles for the switches, as they cannot power down without being unplugged. This all functions fine during an outage.
I would like the management server to come back online on its own. It is a HP DL380 G4 and has the auto power on capability.
In the case of a short outage, which doesnt completely drain the battery, is there a way to make this machine turn itself back on after the load is restored?
Anyone know of a method to make this happen?
